Perl 5.22.3-RC1 is now available!
Message ID:
  The place we came to, to descend the brink from,
    Was sheer crag; and there was a Thing there - making,
    All told, a prospect any eye would shrink from.

  Like the great landslide that rushed downward, shaking
    The bank of Adige on this side Trent,
    (Whether through faulty shoring or the earth's quaking)

  So that the rock, down from the summit rent
    Far as the plain, lies strewn, and one might crawl
    From top to bottom by that unsure descent,

  Such was the precipice; and there we spied,
    Topping the cleft that split the rocky wall,
    That which was wombed in the false heifer's side,

  The infamy of Crete, stretched out a-sprawl;
    And seeing us, he gnawed himself, like one
    Inly devoured with spite and burning gall.

    -- Dante Alighieri, trans. Dorothy L. Sayers, "The Divine Comedy",
       Cantica I: Hell, Canto XII

We are delighted to announce the first release candidate of version

You can find a full list of changes in the file "perldelta.pod" located
in the "pod" directory inside the release and on the web.

***Please, please, please*** test your code against perl-5.22.3-RC1.
This is your last chance to point out any critical regressions before
v5.22.3 ships "for real," and we'd rather fix things for v5.22.3 than
for v5.22.4!

The final v5.22.3 is expected to ship within the next fortnight.
